Auditioning for Street Orchestra Live is simple. We welcome applicants from across the UK, so all auditions are done remotely to give everyone an equal opportunity to apply. Places for this tour remain for these instruments:
Violin | Viola | Oboe | Clarinet | Bassoon
Please note: you must be available for the whole tour period: Sunday 7 July – Sunday 14 July inclusive. Please only apply if you are free for these dates. Rehearsal will be in London (Sun until Wed) and we should be back in London on Sunday 14 July by 7pm.
For more information about playing with SOL please read our FAQ. Please note that travel, food and accommodation are provided, but there is no fee. SOL is a charity and all its players volunteer their time.
How to Apply
We request a copy of your CV and if possible a video of your playing (e.g. via YouTube, Vimeo, G Drive etc.). Ideally a solo piece recorded within the past two years. The choice of piece is up to you (sonata, concerto movement, unaccompanied – all equally accepted).
Please send these to: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you don’t have a video recording then it should be possible to arrange something in person in London, or via Skype/Whatsapp. Initially an email and CV will be sufficient.

How to Apply
To apply we require a copy of your CV and links to two videos for your audition (e.g. via YouTube, Vimeo, G Drive etc.).
Recordings done on a phone are fine as long as the sound is not distorted. (Tip: here’s a useful guide from The Flute Channel about recording an audition video).
